Our Mission Statement: The Western Pacific Property Inspection
Institute is committed to providing professional inspectors of residential
real estate and commercial properties, with access to quality education
despite work and personal commitments or living in a location which
precludes attendance in classroom based programs.
To meet this objective, our courses have been developed to provide
education using live online webinars combined with other distance
We provide participants with the flexibility to take courses from
anywhere in the Province of BC or beyond, while still continuing to work
and live in their home communities.
Q: How long does it take? A: Because of the CPBC requirements, it
takes 6 months to complete. Two - 3 hour evening webinars per week
plus a "lab".
Q: How much does it cost? A: Tuition is $4500 (paid in 2 installments).
Textbooks are extra ($200 - $300 in total). This tuition rate is guaranteed
to the end of 2018 and subject to an increase in 2019.
Q: Lab? A: There is a 3 day "hands on" session in houses here in
Vernon. CPBC counts this as "education", not as "field training".
Q: Why does "made in BC" matter? A: Building performance is
different in BC compared to, say Ontario, because of things like climate
and seismic activity, etc. Our home inspection licensing requirements
are also unique to BC.
